Carrier Class Rack mount 10G Full Gigabit Managed Core Switches for 10GbE Upgradeability for High Bandwidth Applications

California, U.S.A., May 2018 – Ethernet Direct Corporation, a professional and primary provider of industrial networking and communication solutions is pleased to share how our “carrier class” 10G full Gigabit Managed core switches can benefit various applications requiring high bandwidth and high availability.

The Ethernet Direct Cheetah series carrier class and industrial grade Ethernet core switches are engineered to cater advanced core networks with 10GbE upgradeability. These switches are equipped with 20 gigabit SFP ports plus 4 combo gigabit ports and a selection of 2 or 4 10G SFP+ ports, IP30 protection, fan-less design with redundant isolated power supplies. It is a high-capacity switch positioned in the physical core or backbone of a network. Applications like intelligent transportation and industrial automation requires combine data, voice, and video which demand high performance and high reliability. Ethernet Direct full gigabit backbone switches provide maximum flexibility to cater these applications to guarantee system reliability and network availability.

Ethernet Direct offers industrial standards core switches to cater the demands of next generation networks with primary focus on speed, flexibility, reliability and future proof. Our carrier class design is tested and engineered to meet or exceed high availability standards and provide ultra fast fault recovery redundancy with less than 10 milliseconds. This ensures a high level of operational performance and resulted in an increased reliance on the network.
